TRIP DESCRIPTION

Here's your chance to sample our heralded Great Divide Mountain Bike Route -- fully-supported and load-free!

Setting out, we'll travel from the lively resort town of Whitefish, located near Glacier National Park, to the southern end of the spectacular Swan Range, one of Montana's more unsung and less-visited geologic gems. (Not far away and well worth a visit before or after your ride: Flathead Lake, the largest, natural freshwater lake in the West.) Riding mostly on abandoned logging roads, and even a bit of single-track trail, we'll experience the high country of one of the world's great wildland complexes. Along the way, we'll encounter a variety of flora (wild huckleberries may be ripe for the picking) and fauna -- the sharp-eyed might even spot the occasional bear on a distant hillside.

We'll layover for a day in Seeley Lake, where the many options include renting a canoe and paddling the gentle Clearwater Canoe Trail. Back on the bikes, we'll skirt the boundaries of the Bob Marshall and Scapegoat wilderness areas and crest the Continental Divide before dropping into Lincoln, our ultimate destination.
